Small memorial, but definitely significant. Beautiful landscape and quiet area to memorialize such a pivotal point in time. Worth a stop if you are nearby.

My wife and I were in New York City in September and visited the 9/11 memorial. When we stopped at the one here in Overland Park, a lot of the same emotions came over us. It is very touching and they did a wonderful job creating it and making a place for those that lost their lives can be remembered.
Brings back a lot of memories. A day I'll never forget.
